Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Vienna, Austria, working in computer science, music and design.

My research is motivated by human-centred computing, studying user experiences, design thinking, art-based research approaches and HCI-related qualitative and quantitative methods.

The topics of my scientific projects are: to study new ways of STEM education in schools and university teaching using electronic music instruments; to design and evaluation information technology for music-related use cases and cultural applications; and to develop new instruments for musical expression and study novel audience experiences in live music.

Dr. Oliver Hödl

Before my academic career I worked as a software engineer, studied informatics, musicology and philosophy, and had a recording studio as freelance musician.

Voluntarily and in my spare time I am the chairman of the organising committee of the Rudolfina-Redoute. This traditional Viennese ball has its origin in 1899 and is the oldest and last remaining masked ball of its kind. Every year about 4.000 people from all around the world attend the Rudolfina-Redoute on Carnival Monday in the Wiener Hofburg.
